Deep Cove refers to both the community in the easternmost part of the District of North Vancouver, and the geographic name of the small bay beside the town. It is affectionately referred to as “The Cove” by local residents. Located at the foot of Mount Seymour, Deep Cove faces due east, fronting on to Indian Arm, a branch of the Burrard Inlet.
With its proximity to forests, mountains, skiing, parks and ocean, Deep Cove is well known among outdoor recreation enthusiasts. The Deep Cove Bike Shop, a local institution, introduced some of the first mountain bikes to Vancouver in the early 1980s.
The area offers a popular small boat centre with rowing club, canoe and kayak rentals and marina. The bay in front of the community offers overnight anchorage for pleasure vessels.
The Baden Powell Trail leading to the lookout point Quarry Rock is a popular spot for visitors. The Community Centre boasts an art gallery, stage, and archives.
Deep Cove is served by two community schools, Cove Cliff Elementary and Seycove Secondary.
